We visited on a weekday in late November, so there were very few people there. It was so interesting to walk through the various parts of the ship on a self-guided tour. You do need to have a certain level of mobility. I hope more...More

Very impressive. What an honour to be able to walk around this battleship at my own pace and take everything in. So interesting. So glad I made the effort to stop by here.

The whole family enjoyed the tour. The separate adult and children's audio tours (hand-held device) were beneficial. The size of the turrets was breathtaking. The volunteers onboard are relatively knowledgeable--some much more than others; interesting anecdotes.

5 PM is the latest time that you can start your tour. Most guests complete the Fire Power Tour in 90 minutes, so most guests finish their tour by 6:30.
